I have around 4 doctors. see here. Dr.Friedman, Dr. Mahalettj and Dr. Trigg are the main 3. Dr. Schwartz and Diana McFarlane are the other two. ALLOf these doctors are AMAZING!!! I had a very bad experience with a different clinic/hospital and will never see a doctor, ED, etc that I don´t care for again.
Debbie Davenport, PT, was as high quality as was Dr. Friedman, maybe even more, as her assessment was longer and was what the MD based his recommendations on. Good team work!
Excellent listener. Really appreciated honest answers to my questions. Let me end the appointment (did not rush me out of the office).
Really like working with him
Dr Feidman is the vonsumate professional.
Dr. Friedman is the best specialist I have ever consulted with.
Dr. Friedman provides outstanding care to me and I feel fortunate to have him as my physician.
_____ like to keep dr. in future.
He listened to me like he actually cared and had a concern about my welfare.
Dr. Friedman is wonderful!
Dr Friedman is very personable and caring.
All outstanding. Dr. Friedman was very caring. He asked the right questions, and during his examination was able to pin-point my exact problems. I am very grateful that he listened to my concerns about medications, asked more questions, then made solid recommendations that I now look forward to implementing.
The care and professionalism by Dr. Friedman and his assistant are always superlative. Words cannot express my confidence in, and gratitude for, Dr. Friedman and his assistant.
Dr. Friedman is a cool guy and good doctor.
Knowledgable, courteous, helpful.. Excellent Doctor
I had had fears related to the change in medication for a very long time. The doctor allayed my fears, walked me through anxiety with thorough answeres and information. I am glad I was so lucky to have the selection of care givers that I have now.
Dr. Friedman and assistant are excellent.
I have the utmost respect for Dr. Friedman.
Doctor and his assistant were very friendly and excellent at explaining my condition.
Really great Dr.
Dr. Friedman has offered himself as a truly CARING provider. By acknowledging that I (and, consequently, my husband) understand "Doc-speak", and my desire to someday become a physician grants Dr. Friedman the freedom to converse in what surpass most patients´ knowledge of the human body, particularly mu own complex case.
Dr. Friedman - Good man has all my trust with my care.
Dr. Friedman is the perfect blend of professionalism, expertise and kindness!
Dr. Friedman is great!
Dr. Friedman has seen me for 7 years now. He is very knowledgeable, understanding, caring and takes time with you to help understand the problem you have. I will not go to any other spine doctor. Very good bedside manners as well.
As you can tell by my responses, I have had a wholly positive experience with Dr. Friedman and his team. I have seen him since July of 2012 and his approach to helping me find my way to wellness has been - astounding. It has changed the trajectory of my life.
Great, great, great.
Dr. Friedman is one of, if not THE, best care providers I´ve ever seen & continue to see, and I have referred several other patients to him & will continue to do so.
